". . .In July, 1926, the three sensational newspapers also reported a major abortion story, one that began when police found a body cut into pieces and packed into two boxes. 'The packing was done by a trained surgeon,' the New York Journal noted on its first day of coverage, and cited police belief that the boxes were dropped accidentally while being sent to medical students for research. . ."

The topic of abortion is documented throughout the 1900s in New York City.
